Sometimes I see people I've never seen before (to you, I'm probably one of them) post threads that seem a little "over the top" and get closed. When I see someone UG popular, the thread seem to last. How should reputation have anything to do with the thread topic?

Lets all ignore this guys thread now, and make his post true.
I think its time to pack your things lets go,
To a place where we both know,
And dont worry, I'll drive real slow,
Spend some time before we go..

they don't last, the mods treat everyone the same.

The only difference is, if someone like Colohue or ZeG step over the line by accident, mods usually look over it because they CONTRIBUTE IMMENSELY to the site, and know to abide by the rules, but the occasional spammy comment happens to the best of us.

the exception are the mods, they can do what they want cuz they run this site, but regular shmoe's like me or kensai, we get banned instantly when we piss them off.

Do that and you don't get warned/banned.

of course it is. but yknow, it come and goes in cycles. sure, everyone loves kensai's posts, but he's still a noob to me, and someday not so far in the future, he will probably be forgotten and the UG masses will say 'hey, who's that guy!?'

Its to be expected really. The forums a just a microcosm of society, albeit a small, retarded and predominantly male society.

To be honest, I prefer it when they do that. I'd hate to be on a forum where the mods are just silent predators lurking in the darkness, and the population lives in fear of that sudden ban, brutally charging forth from the shadows, accompanied by a horrifically abrupt phrase such as "We don't want your kind here." It's good to see the mod's human side.

We volunteer to keep the site running smoothly by the rules that the website's owner wants to uphold. Moderating is not a privilege, it's a responsability.

Are we then not allowed to use some of our mod powers to have some fun? Mods are allowed to post what you call "spam threads" from time to time, because:
- It's the only thing we can get in return for volunteering to run the website;
- It promotes the feeling of "community", i.e. the mods are still just people who post on the same website as you do;
- Mods tend to have enough common sense to know when the things they post stop being "funny" and derail into "spam";
- And if it does get out of hand, the mod who started it has the necessary tools to make it stop.

I don't see the problem with mods having some fun from time to time

Don't you find it a bit hipocritical though? They wouldnt be silent predators if they engaged in a discussion every now and again, but breaking the rules where other users would be banned instantly...

Not really, it would be hypocritical if they got away with posting porn or stuff like that, because the rules concerning porn and stuff are more objective, and stricter etc. But a little spamfest now and then can't harm anyone.

Quit whining. When Mods horse around, the threads they post wouldn't get a regular user "banned instantly". Yeah, the thread would probably get closed, but that's about it. Unless they were a dumbass and made ANOTHER thread to whine about the first one being closed. Or had recently made several other worthless threads.

Mods work while you and I get to play. Occasionally they wanna act the fool and horse around in ways they don't allow others to. Is that hipocritical? NO. It has nothing to do with criticizing a hippopotamus.

Oh, wait. Maybe you meant hypocritical? Okay, maybe a little. But then again we don't have to put up with them whining about things they don't like all the time, either. So it's a wash, I suppose. Life isn't perfect. I certainly don't expect an internet forum to be perfect either.

You mean like this? https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1220241, since there are youtube threads, and this mod has made a few of these, but they never get closed or anything? Also randomly stickying stupid topics. I've been a mod (yeah it was on a much smaller site) but still, I followed the rules and set an example to other users, if someone new joins the forum and sees mods spamming, then can they be blamed when they do the same? I understand it must be alot of work so I see both sides - but it just annoys me sometimes
